Toyota begins delivering the Fortuner-based Hilux pick-up truck to the dealership – Die Welt

Toyota will launch the Hilux in January 2022. The pick-up was spotted during a TVC shoot in Gurugram. Some dealers have already started taking unofficial bookings of the Hilux for Rs. 2 lakh. Well, after Motorträger, Toyota has started delivering the Hilux pick-up truck to the dealer. However, Toyota has not officially announced anything yet.

Hilux will share many of its fundamentals and components with the Fortuner and the Innova Crysta. For starters, the platform will be the same. Hilux will therefore also be based on the IMV-2 platform. But Toyota increased the wheelbase for the Hilux to 3,085 mm. It measures 5,325 mm in length, 1,855 mm in width and 1,865 mm in height. The ground clearance of the Hilux is 216 mm. It also weighs 2.1 tons.

Toyota will sell Hilux with two diesel engines. There would be a 2.4 liter and a 2.8 liter unit. The 2.4 liter comes from the Innova Crysta. It produces a maximum output of 150 hp and 360 Nm maximum torque. Paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter. This engine is only offered as a rear-wheel drive.

The 2.8 liter unit comes from the Fortuner. It produces a maximum output of 204 hp and a maximum torque of 500 Nm. It is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter. This engine is expected to come with a rear-wheel drive setup and an all-wheel drive setup. Toyota has not officially announced the engine options, so we’ll have to wait for the manufacturer to launch the Hilux.

Toyota will offer Hilux in India in a high-quality double-cab body. So there would be space for at least four passengers and a bed in the rear. Hilux looks ugly, in fact it has more street presence than the Fortuner SUV. This is due to the sheer size of Hilux.

It could be based on the same platform as Innova Crysta and Fortuner, but the exterior is completely different. In the front there are LED projector headlights with LED daytime running lights. There’s a chunky and angular bumper and a bullbar like the design to give it an off-road look.

There are massive wheelhouses with plastic cladding on the sides. There are also side steps so that the occupants can get in and out comfortably. There are also light alloy wheels in a multi-spoke design and chrome-plated exterior mirrors with integrated LED indicators. At the rear there are vertically stacked LED taillights.

Many of Fortuner’s interior components are expected to be carried over to the Hilux. So we expect Hilux to have the same seats, touchscreen infotainment system, gear stick, instrument cluster, door cushions, steering wheel, etc. However, Toyota will make some changes to the Hilux dashboard to make it stand out from the fortune teller.
